Expect the Unexpected

adhd mastery blog Nov 18, 2020

I just arrived at my hotel for a four-day conference. My Uber driver was right on time, at the ungodly hour of 4:30 AM. The Alaska Airlines flight from Portland to Orlando was also on time. I got to sit in the exit aisle, so my 34" inseams were fully extended. The guy seated next to me used the restroom as often as I did, so I didn't even need to create a hassle over that. There was even an empty seat between us, so my stuff could spread itself out. Flight attendants were personable and...

Sleep Your Way to Success with Special Guest Yishan Xu, PhD

podcast Nov 17, 2020
 

Many entrepreneurs are not getting enough sleep.  This is partly due to the hustle culture of entrepreneurship and partly because they tend to bootstrap their business, even when they can afford to hire or outsource.  I work with female entrepreneurs who identify with ADHD traits, and I can say with full confidence that very few of them are getting the kind of sleep that they know they should (and wish they could.) 

This is our first guest expert interview, with sleep...

Watch Your Language

brain stuff Nov 12, 2020

I love me some colorful, dramatic language. Witty banter, sarcasm, dry humor, gallows humor, all of it. What I don't love is how so many people make themselves totally stressed out without even being aware of it, simply because of the language they use to describe things. For example, have you ever noticed how often people, especially women, I'm sorry to say, describe a situation that was inconvenient, frustrating, maybe even somewhat infuriating as "horrific"? Or how about describing running...

Learning and Unlearning

podcast Nov 10, 2020
 

There are many who would like to become entrepreneurs but do not know where to start. Some might get discouraged because they think that they are not “born” to be one. I’m still not certain I believe that there's such a thing as an entrepreneurial personality type, but there are definitely traits that lend themselves well to self-employment.

Some may have learned these traits from their entrepreneurial parents, while others, who never thought that they’d be...

Out of One Box, and Into Another

blog confidence Nov 05, 2020

The human brain loves to identify, label and categorize things. It's how we learn and how the brain can store so much information without ever having an upgrade, or even an update, across the entire span of human life. It's really quite amazing but is also the source of considerable suffering, mainly because there is no such thing as an operations manual for humans. If you are lucky enough to stumble upon this information, it definitely helps you understand why you are the way you are, and...

How to Do Boring Stuff

podcast Nov 03, 2020
 

Do you procrastinate on doing things even though they are important? When we run a business, we need to do the boring yet important stuff, but sometimes we only do them when we “feel” like it or when we are running out of time. 

Doing important things at the last minute can give us feelings of guilt, shame, and regret.  How can we get ourselves to finish these mundane and repetitive tasks? 

In this episode, I will share 4 techniques that you can use in order...

The Driven Girl

blog the driven woman Oct 28, 2020

I watched a very inspiring movie last night & I'm almost 100% positive you've never heard of it. The title is "The Eagle Huntress", a 2016 documentary story of Aisholpan, a 13-year-old Kazakh girl from a nomadic family in Mongolia, who was driven to become the first female eagle hunter to compete in the eagle festival in Mongolia. Her father, Nurgaiv, was an eagle hunter, as was her grandfather. In fact, Aisholpan was born into a family that had produced eagle hunters for over 1,000...

Getting What You Want

podcast Oct 27, 2020
 

Most women struggle to meet expectations and find it difficult to believe that they are enough. Our culture conditions us to be thoughtful, caring, considerate, and nurturing, and always put others needs and wishes ahead of our own.

After years of being who everyone else needs them to be, many women feel lost and don’t even know what they really want. Once they reach their 40s or 50s, many women face the question “What am I going to do with the rest of my life?” Most...

Being Original as an Entrepreneur

blog entrepreneurship Oct 21, 2020

It can be really scary to recognize that you can't do things the way everyone else does and you really don't want to, even if it "works." It just feels wrong, like you are denying your authentic self. This trait can be seen as obstinate, rebellious, insubordinate or stubborn. But I think it's simply being genuine and true to yourself when you don't think like everyone else. 

If you are an entrepreneur in the online world, like myself, there are hundreds of marketing and branding coaches...

The Way Women Win

podcast Oct 19, 2020
 

 

You may have witnessed some women trying to bring others down in order to become successful. You may even have experienced this in your business and in your personal life as well. As we see a rise in the number of women starting their own businesses, having competitors is inevitable. How do we deal with the inevitability of competition in a healthy way?

While I was working out at my gym in Portland, the women’s division of the Mallorca Triathlon was playing on the big...
